Paul Maholm twirls a gem despite no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Paul Maholm turned in a gem but was not backed by enough run support in a no-decision Saturday at home against the Padres. The left-hander dominated the Padres, scattering two hits over six scoreless frames. He struck out four and did not issue a walk in 65 pitches, 45 for strikes.

Maholm enters the All-Star break with a 4.69 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP over 63 1/3 innings of work this season. It remains to be seen if he'll remain in the rotation after the All-Star break. The Dodgers have named their next four starts after the break, but have not determined the fifth starter.

Justin Turner set to start rehab work Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Dodgers infielder Justin Turner is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, MLB.com reports.

He's expected to serve as a designated hitter in his first game action. Barring any setbacks, Turner could be back from the disabled list after three rehab games.

"I don't think it's a matter of [how many] games, it's just trying to get some at-bats," Turner said. "Everything feels good. I took a bunch of at-bats down there, live ABs vs. a couple of young guys down there. But it's a little bit different when you have a cage around you and taking actual ABs. So we'll see how that goes."
